Winterfell is a 3 bedroom Horopito holiday home. This colourful and retro-inspired cottage with mountain views is the perfect escape for a group looking for their next mountain retreat.

With untouched views of Mt. Ruapehu and a sundeck with outdoor dining furniture, this area is a great spot for enjoying a cup of hot chocolate in the morning, before heading up the mountain to enjoy the slopes. The outdoor yard is also beautifully landscaped, with plenty of grass for younger members of your group or family to run around on.

The home itself is beautifully finished with retro-inspired furnishings and colourful bright rooms throughout. The bedrooms much like the rest of the house have vibrant colours and comfortable beds for resting after tiring days on the slopes.

For winter stays, the open fireplace with wood supplies will keep you snug on colder evenings, while you take in all the comfort that this home offers.

The home is ideally situated right down the road of the renowned cyclist track Old Coach Road and just a short 15 minute drive from Ohakune, where you'll find great cafes and brunch spots. Skiers and snowboarders of the groups will be happy to hear that you are perfectly situated between the two ski-fields on Mt. Ruapehu. 30 minutes drive to both Turoa and Whakapapa ski fields, both of them widely considered among the best ski fields in the North Island.

Your next mountain retreat awaits you at Winterfell!

Gorgeous cottage, deck and grounds in a beautiful setting. Quick and easy access to Old Coach Road trail.

Stayed October 2018

We had a very enjoyable stay over Labour Weekend at Horopito Cottage. It ideally located between the Whakapapa and Turoa ski-fields and extremely well appointed. We particularly liked the wrap-around deck which meant we were able to sit out in the sun most of the day, with a wonderful view of Mt Ruapehu. Having the open fire was a real treat too. Renters should be aware that the oven is a Stanley (or Aga as I know it) which is quite challenging to get your head around, but the instructions were helpful. Mobile signal is understandably a little patchy given the remote location, and best out on the front deck. The promised wifi didn't work while we were there, but again we suspect the remoteness affected this. Don't count on it being available. We really loved the cottage and will definitely return next year.
